Streets already closed for West Hollywood Halloween carnival

October 31, 2012 | 12:02 pm

Several West Hollywood streets have already been shut down in anticipation of the city's annual Halloween celebration Wednesday night.

The festival, which runs from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., typically draws thousands of ghosts, goblins and anything — and everything — in between.

The City of West Hollywood outlined the street closures in a news release:

  • San Vicente Boulevard between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday to 7 a.m. Thursday
  • Santa Monica Boulevard between Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard, including all side streets, from noon Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday
  • Robertson Boulevard between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard from 12:01 a.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday
  • Almont and La Peer drives between Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard from noon Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday
  • San Vicente Boulevard between Cynthia Street and Santa Monica Boulevard from noon Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday
  • Santa Monica Boulevard between La Cienega Boulevard and Holloway Drive/Croft Avenue from 4 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday
  • La Cienega Boulevard between Sunset and Santa Monica boulevards from 4 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday, although the northbound lanes of La Cienega will be open between Sunset and Holloway Drive
  • Sunset Boulevard turn lanes onto La Cienega Boulevard from 4 p.m. Wednesday to 6 a.m. Thursday

Permit parking will be suspended between 11 a.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday, the city said, although meters will be enforced.

Billed as "one of the world's largest celebrations of All Hallow's Eve," the West Hollywood Halloween Carnaval's three large stages will feature entertainment including live music, a "fun rock and roll drag show" and "campy burlesque and pyrotechnics," the city said.
